Hello Watermelon Wonder!
I try to convince myself that if I just do a little bit of organizing then I will be in a better place to create. What I am realizing is that this is one of my excuses. One of the things I say or do to avoid having to face that blank piece of paper or that blank canvas. One of the excuses I have so that I don't have to come any closer to that inner critic - who, by the way, I have now named "Dr. Downer." Every time he shows up I can now think to myself, "Dr. Downer I presume?" I imagine that Dr. Downer shares an office with Dr. Doubt and that they have an assistant who answers the phone and says, "Downer & Doubt. How can we NOT help you?" Now that Dr. Downer has a name I am hoping I can tell him I am not in need of his services at this time :) Yes, organizing can be a wonderful thing...and it can also become an excuse for not creating.
Today I inked up the Blended Blooms stamp and the new Layered Letters Alphabet stamps with some Watermelon Wonder ink and went to town! I wasn't sure how I felt about this color, but after creating this card I'm feeling a lot more fond of it. Excuse the Naturals Ivory card stock - I realized after I created the card that this favorite card stock of mine is retired :( Some things we love go away and some things we never even knew we would like come into existence - ah the joys of catalog transition time! I hope you become fond of Watermelon Wonder too! Feel free to shop HERE for Watermelon Wonder you can call your very own :)
